For whatever reason, taking a simple shot of some flowers proved to be my most annoying assignment. I think part of the problem was that I didn't have my camera with me on my run the other day when I came across some gorgeous blooms and when I had my camera with me, the only flowers I came across were a bit on the boring side. At least the color is vibrant!
2011 will forever be known as The Year of the Purge for me. I've been tossing stuff left & right. I've donated around 300 items to friends & charity and at least 20 pairs of shoes. I've pared my wardrobe down to about 75 items and I've got about 20 pairs of shoes remaining. I posted a picture of the surviving shoes on Facebook and in doing so, noticed that I had absolutely NO colorful shoes, aside from my running shoes. I decided to fix that. The leopard wedges are from Marshall's and the turquoise flats/wedges are from Target. So far I love them both very, very much.
What I Ate
Chipotle, glorious Chipotle.
On the Shelf
I've already packed up my books, so I shot this on a trip down to Barnes & Noble this afternoon. I do love a good cookbook.
In my Bag
I felt like Ally Sheedy's character in The Breakfast Club as I was setting this all out. In no particular order, my bag contained the following: wallet, day planner, book (Ape House by Sara Gruen), my passport, a coupon for a free drink at Starbucks, my Metro Transit pass, 4 ink pens, a tube of hand lotion, a tube of blister preventing something-or-other, a tiny mini package of gummy bears that was a gift from a child on one of my flights, blotting papers, tissues, my camera case, 4 lipsticks & a lip balm, 2 Georgia State Lottery tickets redeemable for 2 free tickets, my cell phone, an eye mask, a package of bandaids, a travel brush, toothbrush & toothpaste and finally, my iPod. Holy crap. That seems like just way too much stuff.
Where I Slept
I love my bed.
What I Read
Although, "read" is being kind. I really just flipped through & looked at the pictures. I have a subscription to Marie Claire, but I don't think I'll be renewing it anymore. It's become rather disappointing. I used to always be able to count on Marie Claire to let me feel at least a little intelligent for a fashion magazine. But now it just irritates me more than entertains me.
Aaaaaand we're done. I'm off on a 3-day trip tomorrow, but I'll try to update from the road with the Pic o' the Day!
